Train to Busan was a spectacle to behold. The movie follows a single father living with her daughter and mother. The movie illustrates the relationship of families in the busy life of any ordinary person. The zombie apocalypse represents the everyday obstacles of everyday life.
The plot of the movie is that a deadly virus was purposely released in Korea. Now the protagonist and his daughter are stuck in a train that contains the undead. Not knowing if they can survive they risk everything to get to Busan, where it is declared a safe zone.
Though it is a zombie thriller movie. It isn’t typical walking dead film. The zombies are more alive than most people usually expect. The movie has more of drama than horror. The film is an idiom of the hardships of life and what parents and love once do for the once they care for.
